Majority of us just wonder about getting rich but never think about the reasons which make people successful. And it is your attitude which plays a vital part in your success. In a Rich Habits Study of more than 200 millionaires conducted over 5 years, financial expert and author Thomas Corley identified that rich and successful people avoid getting around with pessimists. Self-made millionaires avoid more getting associated with pessimistic people.
Self-made people try to stay positive by avoiding negative people around them. Corley further explained how optimism and pessimism act differently on our brains.
“The reason having a positive mental outlook is actually a prerequisite for being successful is because it allows you to use 100 percent of your brain,”
“Researchers have found that when you have a negative mental outlook you actually shut off one-third of your brain. Your prefrontal cortex doesn’t operate optimally so you’re relying on your reptilian brain, and your limbic system, and your brain stem, the older parts of the brain, you don’t want that.”
While, if you have a positive outlook in life you tend to take better decisions to achieve your financial goals.
“What happens when you have this positive mental outlook, what I found in my research is it toggles on automatically certain success traits you didn’t even know you possessed: persistence, resilience, you have patience, and focus.”
Finally, it’s a proven fact that if you stay positive in life you are more likely to succeed.
